With speculations over Xbox 720 being released this year, Sony has also got people guessing. It has invited the media over for an event on the 20 February to make an announcement. If the guess is correct, we will see Sony coming out with its latest game console- play station 4.This play station is likely to come out later in the year.
For all play station fans, this one will have 16 GB RAM, 256 GB storage and 1080p HD resolution. You can expect this to make up for shortfalls in the play station PS3 which was released in 2006. Sony may want to bring out the game console earlier to rake in revenues before its rivals. However, money is not the criteria since the earlier play station has been immensely popular. Sony may like to take the lead and beat its competitors with better technology.
If reports are to be believed, parts of the PS4 are being transported to manufacturers. The PS4 is equipped with Blu-ray and arranged in a PC case. The new play station is slated to cost the users $428 which is more than its predecessor- PS3. It may not be a happy situation for users who are hoping that Sony will not ban used games on play stations.
It is still a question whether the new station will allow friends to play games together. There are strong rumours that the play station intends to integrate social networking. PS4 will, in all probability, replace its old controller with touch screens and biometric sensors. It is likely to go in for a cloud service that it bought for $380 million in 2012- Gaikai.
Gamers are waiting with abated breath for the launch of new game consoles. It remains to be seen if Xbox 720 can beat Play station 4 with its launch.
